    “The BMW 2002 tii US VIN 2761944 was manufactured on June 05th, 1972 and delivered on June 07th, 1972 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was Fjord metallic, paint code 037.“

    Legal delivery to Hoffman Motors Corp. on June 7, 1972


    According to the parts listings, this car represents the first U.S.-spec 2002tii to have an E12 head, aluminum intake runners, and a firewall notch (the latter feature perhaps to accommodate ignition timing by means of the flywheel marks given the greater girth of the aluminum intake runners). The first batch of U.S.-spec tii’s with the E12 head and aluminum intake runners extended from VIN 2761944 through VIN 2762014 (71 cars), reverting to a 121 head and plastic intake runners from VIN 2762015 to VIN 2762372 (358 cars). A second, and permanent changeover to the E12 head and aluminum intake runners occurred with VIN 2762373. There may have been some exceptions to the VIN ranges published in the parts listings.


    The whereabouts of VIN 2761944 are not currently known.
